From the thrilling pirouettes of the male dancers in drag, with brilliant and innovative choreography to the side splitting humour, all presented in specially-designed lavish costumes. Victor Trevino’s hit Men In Pink Tights is a show designed for male, female, young and old. This production is the ultimate send-up of both classical and contemporary ballet. The combination of brilliant dancing technique, tongue in cheek and blatant humour with intentional foibles, dancing mishaps and of course hissy fits by men playing both male and female roles (some of the men do actually look like gorgeous women, while others are hairy chested men with pancake makeup but all in tutus etc. dancing on perfect pointe) creates great entertainment.
Les Ballets Eloelle is one of the few all male comedy ballet companies in the world. Specifically, Les Ballets Eloelle’s Men In Pink Tights boasts over fifty classical ballets in its repertoire and twenty of the best international male ballet dancers from 13 countries. Artisitic Director Victor Trevino said “Les Ballets Eloelle is committed to the core art form of ballet and promoting it through the comedic tradition of male comedy ballet.”
